Although I am a huge fan of a living books approach to homeschool, I also love reproducible books that you can use for exercises or activities. Generally, reproducible books are designed with the classroom teacher in mind. Buying the book grants the teacher the right to duplicate the pages for her class of students. Homeschool moms can use reproducible books in the same way, copying pages for their own children.
But what is the best way to organize reproducible books? I've found three different options and will outline them here for you to weigh.
NOTE: You don't have to photocopy reproducible books. Some people use them as consumables. That's fine. But if you want to use the resource for several children, or desire to resell the book later, or even want to have a back up copy in the case of mistakes, photocopying your book is a good solution.
